We are Upgrading our Network!
To provide our customers with the fastest and most reliable connection possible, we have begun to make many upgrades to our fiber-optic network. These changes will continue to occur over the next several months.
Friday June 23, 2017 Planned Maintenance
On June 23rd at 3am ET Greenlight Networks will be performing upgrades to our network that will likely create brief service outages. We anticipate this planned maintenance will take between 1 and 2 hours to perform. The network infrastructure is being upgraded in way to provide greater redundancy, additional capacity, and increased service assurance. The demand for ultra high-speed Internet service continues to grow and Greenlight Networks is committed to meeting these demands with our state of the art all fiber network.
We Are Adding More Capacity and Redundancy to the Internet
Over the past few months we’ve more than doubled our capacity to multiple internet connections. This will allow our customers to connect to their favorite sites faster and makes our network less prone to outages. We will continue to add capacity as we add customers.
We’ve upgraded our core router to manage all our new customers. This allows us to add more connections to other internet providers, and multiple layers of redundancy. Upgrading our router allows us to build more resilient links throughout the network. This has also allowed us to double the capacity of many portions of the network so we can keep up with all your Netflix binging every weekend! :-)
We’ve more than doubled the size of our team this year, and we’re in the midst of launching a new billing and customer care platform to help us be more responsive to you. The new system will likely go live in 1Q17, and more information will come prior to its launch. We want to make sure we can provide our customers with the support they need, when they need it.
You may have heard that the IPv4 numbers are no longer available on the internet. To better explain this, it’s similar to when telephone numbers were exhausted and as a result area codes were split and 10-digit dialing took place in some areas. ARIN, the governing body for internet numbers, has resolved this issue by creating IPv6, which is basically an internet address with many more alpha-numeric symbols so we won’t run out again-at least for a very long time. While we have acquired one trillion, one trillion addresses for IPv6 to hand out to our customers, not all sites on the internet have converted to this new numbering scheme, so the user experience isn’t very good right now. In the meantime, we are implementing Network Address Translation (NAT) to ensure that all our customers can access the internet. We have launched this with several of our customers already, and 99% of applications run just fine. The other 1% can be remedied working with our customer service concierges by moving to a static IP address.
Our team is proud and excited to continue to provide our customers with the highest quality and most up to date Internet service possible!
